Really? Because he called you an "idiot"?

I think a Moderator would have to first determine if you are in fact an idiot by looking at order history and in-game messages. :D

We don't investigate any form of private messages outside of extraordinary circumstances (eg threats of violence). That's because they are private and should be dealt with privately, whereas Forum posts and Public Press posts are public.

To be honest, though, we wouldn't usually act on being called an idiot. We would act - on a public post - that was sexually explicit or racially/sexually/religiously abusive. And we treat each case individually.

There's a fine line between deletable and bad. That line was toed by a player named sevenoaks.

But yeah, the only time I've seen a PM deleted/actioned was when someone threatened to hack the site, find out where a player lived, and hunt them down (IIRC). I have heard of PP/forum stuff going kaput, though.
